Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This is a study of safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of a single ascending dose of FT-104 HCl in healthy volunteers. It is cohort designed with up to 6 cohorts of eight participants, where 6 will receive FT-104 HCl and two will receive placebo as a sub-cutaneous injection in the upper arm in the Clinical Research Unit. The dose escalation decisions between cohorts will be managed by a Safety Review Committee.
Eligibility will be assessed during a screening period of up to 28 days prior to dosing. For the treatment period, subjects will be admitted to the clinical research unit (CRU) one day prior to the dosing (Day -1). Randomisation will occur on the morning of dosing (Day 1).
On Day 1, all subjects will receive the assigned subcutaneous dose of FT-104 HCl or placebo. Participants will be discharged from the clinic on Day 2 (~24 hours post-dose) after all required study procedures are completed and if deemed medically fit. Subjects will return to the clinic on Day 10 (± 2 days) for a follow up visit.
Up to 6 cohorts may be enrolled in the study. Four (4) single doses are planned to be tested in 4 cohorts (Cohort 1 to Cohort 4) of up to 8 healthy volunteers (up to 6 active and 2 placebo). Two (2) additional ascending dose levels (Cohort 5 and Cohort 6), each consisting of up to 8 subjects (up to 6 active and 2 placebo), may be added based on emerging safety, tolerability, and PK data.
The following dose levels are planned for the study:
• Cohort 1: 5.5 mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
• Cohort 2: 11 mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
• Cohort 3: 22 mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
• Cohort 4: 33 mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
• Cohort 5: 44 mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
Cohort 6: 38mg FT-104 HCl or placebo
The highest dose that may be evaluated is 52.7 mg FT-104 HCl.
Sentinels will be used in all cohorts. Within each cohort, 2 subjects will be treated first: 1 subject will receive FT-104 HCl and 1 subject will receive placebo. Provided no clinically significant safety issues, are noted at least in the 24 hours following the sentinels’ dosing, as judged by the Principal Investigator (PI), the remaining 6 subjects of the cohort can be dosed (5 active, 1 placebo).

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 330552 0
Adverse event data will be collected from the time of consent until the last study visit (Day 10). Examples of expected adverse events include mild headache and mild lethargy immediately after administration. Some transient changes in mood and /or mental state such as anxiety, panic, paranoid/delusional thinking could occur, Adverse event data collection will occur at each interaction with the subject from the time of informed consent. Subjects will also be instructed to inform the investigator or clinic staff of any AEs or inter-current illnesses experienced during the study. Adverse events may also be recorded from observations from laboratory tests, ECG measurements, physical examination. The Investigator will decide the severity of the event (mild, moderate or severe) based on guidance contained in the study protocol.
Safety Laboratory Tests from blood (biochemistry, haematology) and from urine (urinalysis)
Vital sign data: blood pressure - measured by sphygmomanometer; pulse rate measured manually; body temperature measured by tympanic or oral thermometer. Assessment of vital signs may occur at additional time points, at the investigator’s discretion.
ECG measurements (measured using a 12 Lead ECG Machine). Injection site observations will be performed by qualified medical personnel to assess local tolerability. Systematic assessment of suicidal ideation and behavior will be assessed by using Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale.
All AEs will be assessed for severity (mild, moderate, severe) by the Investigator, causality to study drug and study procedures (related, unrelated), outcome (recovered/resolved recovering/resolving, recovered/resolved with sequelae, not recovered/not resolved, fatal, based on guidance contained in the study protocol. Adverse events (AEs) and SAEs’s will be coded using the most current MedDRA available at the time of study commencement (Version 24.1 or greater).
Timepoint [1] 330552 0
Adverse event data will be collected from the time of consent until the last study visit (Day 10)
Safety Laboratory Tests (biochemistry, haematology, urinalysis) are collected at Screening, Day -1, Day 2 and Day 10
Vital signs assessments will be conducted at screening, on Day -1, on Day 1 (at 30 min ± 15 min predose and at 1 h ± 15 min, 4h ± 15 min, 8h ± 30 min, 12h ± 30 min post-dose), on Day 2 (24 h ± 30 min post-dose), and on Day 10 or early termination visit.
ECG Data will be collected at screening, on Day -1, on Day 1 (at 30 minutes [min] ± 15 min pre-dose and at 1 hour [h] ± 15 min, 4h ± 15 min, 8h ± 30 min, 12h ± 30 min post-dose), on Day 2 (24 h ± 30 min post-dose), and on Day 10 or early termination visit.
Secondary outcome [1] 406648 0
To investigate the pharmacokinetics (PK) properties of single escalating doses of FT-104 HCl administered subcutaneously.
The measured individual plasma concentrations of FT-104 and isoprocin will be used to directly obtain Cmax and Tmax.
AUC0-t will be calculated according to the linear up/log down trapezoidal method using the measured concentration-time values above the lower limit of quantification (LLOQ). AUC0-inf will be calculated by combining AUC0-t and Extrapolated portion of the AUC (AUCextrap). AUCextrap represents an extrapolated value obtained by Ct/(lambda)Z, where Ct is the last plasma concentration measured above the LLOQ and (lambda)Z represents the terminal elimination rate constant determined by log-linear regression analysis of the measured plasma concentrations of the terminal elimination phase. The half-life of FT-104 and isoprocin will be calculated as follows: t1/2 = ln 2/(lambda)Z.
The PK parameters will be calculated using actual blood sampling times [hours, h] (relative to the corresponding administration time), and negative pre-dose times will be set to zero. PK parameters will be listed and summarized with descriptive statistics (number of available observations, mean, median, standard deviation, min, max, coefficient of variation as a percent [%CV], geometric mean and geometric %CV).
The PK population will be used for the PK parameter summaries.
Dose proportionality following single dose administration will be assessed using the power model. Plasma PK parameters Cmax and AUCs, will be assessed by fitting the following power model and determining the 90% confidence interval for ß:
Parameter = a x Doseß
Where a 90% confidence interval for ß that includes 1 indicates dose proportionality.
Timepoint [1] 406648 0
Blood for the assessment of PK will be collected at the following time points: Pre-dose, 3 ± 1 min, 7 ± 1 min, 15 ± 2 min, 30 ± 2 min, 45 ± 2 min, 60 ± 5 min, 75 ± 5 min, 90 ± 5 min, 2 h ± 10 min, 3h ± 10 min, 4h ± 20 min, 5h ± 20min, 6h ± 30 min, 8h ± 30 min, 12h ± 30 min, 16h ± 30 min and 24h (Day 2) ± 30 min post-dose.
